If you've been following the world of pop culture this week you'll know that on Monday, Canadian crooner Justin Bieber cut his signature shaggy locks into a shorter, closer-cropped 'do. Tired of his old look, Bieber told Entertainment Weekly he did it solely because he wanted to: "That's it, not really a big reason," he said.
And the Twitter feed continues to buzz about it-because people that are still upset: "Between my boyfriend being in Germany for another week and Justin Bieber cutting off his hair I'm an emotional wreck" one young fan tweeted yesterday. "I don't like Justin Bieber's new hair. He doesn't look like the kid I used to like before. Damn hairstylist," wrote another. Others are ecstatic: "Justin Bieber's new hair??? LOVE IT!!!! Makes everyone know he's growing up! Good job Bieb!!!!," and, "I don't hate Justin Bieber's hair anymore. Tom Brady, please follow suit."

For those in severe mourning, you can actually purchase Bieb's hair clippings on eBay. The current bid is at $7,100 (!!!), but the auction runs for five days. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to The Gentle Barn, a non-profit organization that rescues and rehabilitates abused animals. We're glad the money is going to a good cause, because you have to have some serious Bieber Fever to pay that much for a bunch of dead cells.
